On the bigger picture, DLR's fall FM 118.66 (Dec 2016) to 2019 low at 104. 46 (Sep) confirms early uptrend FM 2016 29-month bottom at 99.00 has hit a top there. Despite hitting a 3-1/2 year bottom of 101.19 in Mar 2020 on risk-off trades due to COVID-19 pandemic, DLR's rally to 111.71 the same month signals correction over. Despite DLR's erratic fall to 102.60 (Jan 2021), subsequent rise to 116.65 at the start of Jul, then break of 2020 top at 112.22 to a fresh 5-year peak of 116.34 in Dec signals LT rise FM 2020 3-1/2 year 101.19 low is en route twd 116.73. Having said that, this week's decline below 115.00 signals long-overdue correction has taken place n may head back twd 113.15 but 112.54 should hold.

Today, DLR's selloff below Mon's 115.05 low (now res) to 114.01 suggests price would head twd 113.95, minor 'bullish convergences' on hourly indicators should keep price abv 113.59 n bring a much-needed recovery. Only a daily close abv 114.70 signals temporary low is made n yields retracement to 115.05 later.
